Okay, I have no idea what's going on. I recently installed Windows 7. I ran CCleaner not long ago and I never noticed the issue before running CCleaner. Every browser (Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer) if I visit any secured website such as Hotmail or any site you have to log in, purchase things, etc, I get things about certificate not valid and what not. Now, I've checked up on this and it's apparently a time issue with most people. When I first installed Windows I was not connected to the internet and the time was incorrect, so I have to set it manually. Then, when Windows was installed and working I noticed the date was incorrect, so I changed that as well.

So, my time is correct. What else could be the problem? I restored the registry backups I did with CCleaner, but that did not work.

EDIT: after uninstalling BitDefender 2013, I'm no longer having the problem. Why is BitDefender causing this problem?
